Re: What is a great framework for learning (Aikido) ?

Disclaimer: Sometimes my practise is compromised by my ability to stay open towards learning, this is offcourse my personal issue and not worth debating here, so I would like to ask what you people think is a good framework for learning and practising Aikido in a positive spirit ? (without diving too deep into personal and psycological themes, Im talking about the framework, not our individual idiosyncrasies)
IMHO, it is our individual psychological idiosyncracies that creates our learning framework in Aikido and life.

Mind open, I learn.

Mind shut, I don't

Perhaps you disclaimer is the answer to your question? Perhaps its because we dis-claim the opportunity and experience that we fail to learn from it?
